    Thanks for posting that, it does not really look like what I have in mind when I think of natural tan

    Got to say, that sample looks very different to my boots when they were new, they were much more flesh pink, quite horrible actually.

    So i have been tanning my sample for the past week.
    It has been very sunny, and i have been moving the sample around to make sure it got as much sun as possible through out the day. The right half is tanned, the left half didn't see the sun.

    I doubt i will be ordering anything in this hide, it's just not the right colour for me, it's not what i would call "natural" but sandy brown.

    That's a good description Carlos. I would agree. A bit of a muddy brown. I plan on coating the half I set in the sun in Vaseline to see if that changes how it reacts to it. I'm all but convinced I'll be ordering a moonshiner in it. Not much pull up to it either, tho it does lighten up when manipulated.

    The official word from Denny is:

    "The Natural Chrxl is very nice and the feedback has been pretty positive so there is a good chance we will get some more."

    No ETA yet

    Send Aero an email and ask if they still have some left. I did that, and they are making a dustbowl in it for me. Holly did tell me that they had enough for one more jacket, so not sure if they are out for now. Worth a shot if you want a jacket done in it. Although reading what Denny said, it does sound very likely that they will make it a part of their standard range of leathers.

    Interesting Carlos the colour of your sample because I bought the jacket they made in this hide and the overall colour looks different. I personally think it’s exactly the same colour and hide as a brand new baseball mitt. I’ll upload pics

    Thanks Carlos I’m going to wear it hard and see what it looks like in a year or 2. I’m not sure why your sample looks so different but I thought I should upload these pics because if I received the jacket and it was the same colour as your sample i would feel the same way you do. If the colour was like that I’d feel like I might as well go for a brown CXL FQHH as it just looks sandy brown as you stated

    Seeing this makes me think I made the right decision to order a jacket in this leather. Looks amazing!

    Cheers Bowen thank you for the kind words. I’m very pleased with it. I’ve got a few Aero jackets (30’s halfbelt, vintage highwayman, j106 and a real deal A2) but I’m really in love with this one in particular I will definitely upload pics as it ages
